    How did the Sun stand still in Joshua 10:13-14?

    Joshua 10

    12 On the day the Lord gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the Lord in the presence of Israel:

    “Sun, stand still over Gibeon,
    and you, moon, over the Valley of Aijalon.”
    13 So the sun stood still,
    and the moon stopped,
    till the nation avenged itself on[b] its enemies,

    as it is written in the Book of Jashar.

    The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. 14 There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a human being. Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel!
    How Long is Day on Mercury?
    Due to its rapid orbital period and slow rotation, a day on Mercury lasts 176 days, which is twice as long as a year on that planet!

    It takes Mercury 88 earth days to travel around the sun. BUT Mercury rotates on it axis very slowly and from sunup to sunup is 176 earth days or two Mercury years.

    Mercury also has a elliptical orbit and so it travels faster near the sun and slower when further away from the sun. This changing velocity of Mercury means that if you were standing on a certainly spot on Mercury the sun would seem to stop in the sky for a while and then go on.

    So if the sun can seem to stop in the sky on Mercury it could happen on earth IF some massive but small object like a black hole traveled through our solar system during the life of Joshua. The massive gravity of the black hole could slow the velocity of the earth around the sun and then when passed it could speed it back up.

    That means that God would have planned long ago for this black hole to travel through our solar system at the exact time it was needed to seem to stop the sun in the sky.
